Added February 1st, 2019

Limerick Minister, Patrick O’Donovan TD has announced funding of €26,199,251 which has been allocated to assist the repair of regional and local roads in Limerick.

 “This funding announced today will assist Limerick City & County Council in progressing repairs to regional and local roads. 2019 will see a further significant increase in grant funding for regional and local roads, which I’m delighted to see.

 “As the Minister here in Limerick, I have worked with all of my Government colleagues to ensure the maximum amount of funding for Limerick. Recent extreme weather events have had a major impact on the regional and local road network and this funding will see essential maintenance and improvements carried out.”

 “The Government is determined to support the continued growth in our economy in the years to come by maintaining and renewing existing infrastructure. I know this funding will greatly assist in the repairs and ensure our road network in Limerick is of the highest standard”.

 “These grants are to supplement local authorities’ own resources and expenditure on regional and local road and are just part of the total investment in regional and local roads for this year.”
